    Description

    Condition Census 1896 Dime, An Overlooked Condition Rarity in the Barber Series

    1896 10C MS66 PCGS. Repunched Date. Lawrence No. 101. Repunching on the date is most readily evident within the upper loop of the 6. Despite a not insignificant mintage of 2 million pieces, the 1896 is a challenging coin to locate in grades above the MS64 level. The first MS66 PCGS representative that we have handled since 1999, this lovely Gem is appreciably prooflike in finish with blushes of reddish-russet patina. The color seems to gravitate toward the denticles, but all areas are equally free of bothersome abrasions. Razor sharp in striking detail. NGC and PCGS Population: 12 in 66, with none finer (10/02). (NGC ID# 23DY, PCGS# 4809)

    Weight: 2.49 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
